Salsa Limón opens artsy storefront across from Fort Worth Modern
We've got the full menu, plus the skinny on drinks.
FORT WORTH Food truck fans have likely already discovered the unique pleasures of Salsa Limón -- it was, after all, recognized for having one of the best burritos in the country by USA Today. On June 19, Limón lovers can have a seat and soak in an artsy new atmosphere when owner Ramiro Ramirez opens a permanent storefront across from Fort Worth's Modern Museum of Art.
The new "museo" location will be Ramirez's second permanent storefront, joining his first in La Gran Plaza in Fort Worth. Taking advantage of the cultured atmosphere, the new setting keeps with a contemporary art theme that will "complement its surroundings," according to a press release.
“We want to pay homage and be a supplement to what has already been established here," Ramirez said about the museum adjacent space in the release. "People can expect a more modern-art feel to the space and the menu.”
More creative, however, are Ramirez's drink offerings, which include freshly-squeezed aguas frescas (non-alcoholic fruit drinks) and authentic Micheladas, beer cocktails with juices, sauces, spices, and peppers.
"Our Michelada is a secret recipe, but hands down da' best always with a kick of spiciness," Ramirez said.
As for aguas frescas, they will include flavors already created such as "Horchata made from scratch (rice coconut cinnamon and milk); Jamaica (refreshing Hibiscus tea brewed on-site); tart and sweet Limeaid; and varying flavors from in-season fruits."
There will also be Mexican Coke and fresh young coconuts.
While the new storefront's menu and decor respond to the permeation of culture surrounding it, Ramirez said it is also important to maintain the brand's "original street-food feel" by offering a walk-up window and patio with pine log benches.
If you go: To celebrate the opening, Salsa Limón will give away one free breakfast taco per week through August 19. Guests must show the cashier that they are checking in on Facebook to have their names and contact information added to the drawing. Coupons will be sent to the winners via email.
The Museo location will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and will be open late, until 11:30 p.m., every day. One of the Fort Worth based franchise's three food trucks will head into Dallas for rounds at Greenville Avenue and Klyde Warren Park in the fall.
